It turns out that Jobcentre bosses in London have organised an Easter Egg hunt for the jobless. Among the gifts laid on courtesy of
the Easter BunnyJames Purnell will be an application form to become a security guard, a licence to work on building sites and vouchers to buy an interview suit.
Around 150 jobless will this Wednesday be asked to search for 35 chocolate eggs hidden around the Southwark offices of Jobcentre Plus contractor, Skills Training Centre UK.
I'd seen this somewhere else, but didn't realise that they weren't hunting for eggs, they were actually hunting for these fucking "gifts" (funded by the taxpayer, natch!)
How fucking insulting can you actually get towards someone who wants to get a job?
